Tenner Or Less: Sausage Sandwich at Curious Pig

What on earth is a "pub-on-the-go"? The first ever one has opened at St Pancras International

Where? On the upper concourse at St Pancras International, just an olive’s chuck from the longest champagne bar in the world ever and the handful of smart brasseries on the western side.

What? The station’s first ‘pub-on-the-go’ (from Geronimo, who also own the very near Sir John Betjeman), apparently, offering very meaty snacks if you’re on the, erm, hoof. Porkophiles will salivate over the Cumberland sausage with English mustard on sourdough (£5.95).

Why? It makes a nice change to the more expensive outlets that pepper the station. And there’s a full wine list and craft beer fridge, packed with north London brewery Beavertown’s eye-catching range of cans.

Don’t: Expect to get a spot inside at peak hours, as it was packed to the rafters even on our late-lunch Friday visit. But there are tables and chairs on the concourse too, providing arctic winds aren’t sweeping through the terminus.

Notes: We would have liked a bit more interest in our sandwich, if truth be told: it’s an incredibly basic meat+bread combo (pictured above), so if you’re in any kind of health-freak mode you may need to add your own green stuff. Or gorge on your 5-a-day at the next feed.

Open daily. Upper Concourse, St Pancras International, Euston Rd N1C
